Danish producer Kasper Bjorke has quickly become one of my favorite producers. You may know him from his 2007 hit “Doesn’t Really Matter”. Kasper is back with a new album on hfn music (also home of another favorite, Trentemøller). Standing on Top of Utopia picks up where In Gumbo left off. The album is full of electro-pop tunes along side more bass heavy moody house and indie tunes. On top of Kasper’s own vocals, the album guest vocalist Tomas Höffding (WhoMadeWho), Jacob Bellens (I Got You On Tape), and Louise Foo.
The new single, “Alcatraz” features remixes from Jimpster, Zombie Disco Squad, and more.
“Young Folks” features remixes from the likes of WhoMadeWho (love these guys), Serge Santiago, and Lopazz & Zarook.
Definitely recommend picking up this album and it’s many singles it’s bound to spawn.

The blogs have been buzzing with the fact that LA based artist, Flying Lotus will have some huge features on his upcoming record including collabos from Erykah Badu, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, and the return of ‘Inifinitum’ vocalist Laura Darlington.
Until the new album drops, Warp is giving away three unreleased album cuts.
King Britt is putting his last dance record out on Nervous Records. He will be retiring the dance / house productions to pursue a more experimental sound. The former Digable Planets member took to his website to tell his fans of his retirement from dance production.
From King Britt
“Well, its been a minute since I released an album of original material. The Intricate Beauty will be coming this March/April on Nervous/FiveSix. I had a great time working on it and collaborating with the beautiful singers, Rucyl, Lady Almaa, Ryat and Astrid Suryanto, as well as remixing Kim English and Byron Stingly exclusives for the album.
This album will be my last ‘conventional’ dance album. I have been inching more into experimental electronica and techno, like The Nova Dream Sequence and Ramon Tejada w/ Rucyl Mills. "
“Now” features vocals from Astrid Suryanto. The track is an interesting direction for King. It sounds like a Telepopmusik track featuring a Tracey Thorn (Everything But The Girl) vocal. What do you think?
King Britt’s “Intricate Beauty” will be released on April 20, 2010.

Looks like San Francisco/Brooklyn band Lemonade may finally get the love they deserve. I’ve been a fan of these guys for some time now and happy to see that this may be their year. Their new EP “Pure Moods” is out this March and features remixes from SF’s Ghost on Tapes, Hackman, and Le Chev on True Panther Sounds (Distributed by Matador Records).
This is Lemonade’s follow-up to their praised and explosive debut album. This EP is an utterly unique take on electronic dance music, this time focused and melodic. It incorporates more explicit soca, dub, and calypso influences into Lemonade’s existing ravey palate. Even if those sounds are channelled through 16-bit samples and city stories the record has a certain wetness to it- a rich vegetation of sounds. Tight electronic arrangements layered with Alex Pasternak’s fiercely clattered drums, Ben Steidel’s invitingly rubbery bass and Callan Clendenin’s wobbly vocal harmonies float in and out of scope. The whistles of Bedstuy’s West Indian Day Parade ring out in “Banana Republic”, Ballearic synths carress “Remain In Jah”. The EP’s leading track “Lifted” somehow submerges its anthemic chorus and raindrop synths under a deafening waterfall. It feels good. If their debut was citric slime, this EP is an orange; firm and almost uniform in its peel, sweet and wet inside.

Deep house legend, Osunlade is known by many in the dance community for his deep, afro, latin house. Many, however, are unaware of the fact that Osunlade first got his start in genres outside the dance realm. He has written music for Sesame Street and worked with the likes of Patti Labelle and Roy Ayers. Looking at his past it’s really no surprise that he would return to his soul, jazz, r&b roots with “The Rebirth”. This album proves that he is a far more accomplished musician than many may think of when they think of DJ Osunlade. “The Rebirth” is one of the most well produced albums that has ever come across our table. Full of lush instruments and deep lyrical content, Osunlade wrote and played almost all the instruments himself.
Resident Advisor sat down with Osunlade back in October and this is what he had to say of the new record. “Before I started doing house music, I only did the type of music that’s coming out on this album. This is a personal thing. This is probably the most vulnerable, the closest to my heart that I’ve been creatively.”
The mysterious Balearic pop artist, JJ, has been getting a lot of play. Her track, “My Way” features Lil Wayne, sampled from a track he recorded with Trina. Sincerely Yours is giving away the two new tracks from JJ’s forthcoming album “jj nº 3” (on Secretly Canadian).

OK, jj went to malaga to have some fun, get some sun and 2 albums done. it was back in the fall of 2008 when they had both lost their virginity to insanity and were looking for moments of clarity. a plane to spain felt like a reasonable opportunity.
so with money in the bank, nobody to thank, it started with a drank.
and a couple of hours later the on the 29th of september they had felt the first breeze coming in from africa, sweet winds of melodies pure and true. And now, it’s time to give it away to you, of course for free, for you to see how vacation could be. so, let go, cause this is my way.

In preparation for the release of Groove Armada’s highly anticipated Black Light album, enlisted remixer Treasure Fingers (Fool’s Gold) got busy on the first single I Won’t Kneel. The Epic Wave Remix is by far my favorite remix thus far, putting a nu disco spin on the original with tinges of a big room banger. We’re giving away the radio edit below and stay tuned for the extended and dub versions in retailers shortly.
